Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion for Local Authorities

Commercial Benefits

Local authorities who have source segregated food waste collections can reduce their waste management costs through diverting organic waste to anaerobic digestion. This is because sending food waste to anaerobic digestion costs a fraction of sending it to landfill. Treating municipal waste through AD demonstrates a positive approach to municipal waste management, particularly as the process is becoming more familiar to the public.

Environmental Benefits

Reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions

Organic waste that is sent to landfill allows methane to be released directly into the atmosphere. Methane is around 20 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and therefore far more harmful to the environment.

The AD process captures the energy stored in the methane and turns it into useful electrical energy and heat and carbon dioxide. Furthermore the AD process ensures that vital, finite resources that are essential for plant growth are returned to land in a controlled way.
